Tangalooma Whale Watch Cruises

Multiple Locations

The humpback whale is known for their long migration journeys each winter, putting on a magnificent display of breaching, tail slapping and spy hopping as they make their way to warmer waters. South-East Queensland is one of the best places to view these amazing creatures, with up to 20,000 whales expected to journey past Moreton Island this winter. This is definitely something you don't want to miss!
